We are in the midst of an obesity epidemic, but despite being inundated with diet advice we are only getting fatter. We count calories and exercise regularly, yet still the pounds won't budge. Why? In this highly enjoyable and provocative book, Dr Jason Fung sets out a groundbreaking new theory: that obesity is caused by our hormones, rather than a lack of self-control. He reveals that overproduction of insulin in the body is the root cause of obesity and obesity-related illnesses including type 2 diabetes
Althoug much of the content in this book is not new to me the most important thing i have learned is that INSULIN causes obesity. That guiding principle puts all the other information into perspective. the solution is a simple approach to diet and health -simple but not necessarily easy.
In this groundbreaking book, Alanna Collen explores the extraordinary world of the powerful microbes that make up 90 percent of the human body. You are just 10 percent human. For every one of the cells that make your body, there are nine impostor cells. You are not just flesh and blood, muscle and bone, brain and skin, but bacteria and fungi. You are not an individual but a colony of microbes. Far from being passive, the trillions of microbes that live on and in you are intimately involved in running your body.
really enjoyed listening to this book. I didn't expect a quite scientific book about the gut to also be a real page turner. if you or anyone you love suffers from any 21st century conditions like diabetes, obesity, IBS, asma, autism, ME - then this book may change your life.

Mark Twain once observed, "A lie can get halfway around the world before the truth can even get its boots on." His observation rings true: urban legends, conspiracy theories, and bogus public-health scares circulate effortlessly. Meanwhile, people with important ideas (business people, teachers, politicians, journalists, and others) struggle to make their ideas "stick". In this indispensable guide, we discover that sticky messages of all kinds draw their power from the same six traits.
really inspiring book full of great memorable ideas and stories. I shall be reading it again there is so much to learn here.
Since taking over TED in the early 2000s, Chris Anderson has shown how carefully crafted short talks can be the key to unlocking empathy, stirring excitement, spreading knowledge, and promoting a shared dream. Done right, a talk can electrify a room and transform an audience's worldview. Done right, a talk is more powerful than anything in written form.
Absolutely loved this book. Chris may not be tge best speaker himself but he has observed so many speeches and knows what makes a great speech. Essential if you are planning a TED talk but a must have for anyone wanting to improve their public speaking.

Whatever your physical goal, The 4-Hour Body eclipses every other health manual by sharing the best kept secrets in the latest science and research to provide new strategies for redesigning the human body. And you don't need to exhaust yourself. International bestselling author, Timothy Ferriss, helps you reach your true genetic potential in 3-6 months with a commitment of less than four hours per week.
I resisted this book after reading some reviews then listened to a speech and decided to give it a try. some great information and ideas though as a vegetarian a lot of the diet is very meat based and I am not keen on cold showers and ice baths. I was also not keen on some of his heavy suplimenting regimes. I am inspired enough to buy the book as I think I need to study some of this in more detail. The ideas to improve sex life definately will be getting more study😀
How did an American immigrant without a college education go from Venice Beach T-shirt vendor to television's most successful producer? How did a timid pastor's son surmount a paralysing fear of public speaking to sell out Yankee Stadium - twice? How did the city of Tokyo create a PowerPoint stunning enough to win them the chance to host the Olympics? They told brilliant stories.
What I most like about this book is that each chapter explores how a great leader, speaker and inovator has used story to achieve success. It's not just about use of story in speeches, though there is plenty of that, the book explores the critical I'm prance of story in sales, marketing, leadership and entrepreneurship. no matter how good you are at storytelling there is something to learn here. I will certainly be reading/listening to it again.
